Released Thursday, 4th March 2021
Good episode? Give it some love!
In this first episode of the series, we’ll bring you the story of Telex, a media organisation that was willed into being by its founders when one of Hungary’s flagship media outlets was pushed to the brink of collapse by government pressure. When almost all of Index’s 90-member staff resigned, they set out to start their own organisation and to fund it through reader contributions. In the first month of their crowdfunding campaign, they collected 1 million euros from their readers. Audio excerpts for the episode were used with the permission of 444.hu. Index staff resigning: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=faKBfU5bvNwProtest… in Budapest, Hungary in support of Index staff: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJ-MD54iKEU
